Common examples of construction applications include curing concrete, structural testing, temperature monitoring of building materials, vibration monitoring, and more. CAS DataLogger offers many durable and weatherproof data logging solutions monitoring temperature, vibration, pressure, force, and more, along with vibrating wire strain gauge support.
Electroacoustic effects are result of coupling between acoustic and electric fields. Debye realized 70 years ago that in the presence of longitudinal sound wave, any differences in the effective mass or friction coefficient between anions and cations woul
The nuclear industry must increase the availability and reliability of its power stations whilst ensuring that a high level of safety is maintained. The principal weak points in achieving this objective are the industry`s systems and components.
Noise has become the primary source of environmental disturbance. In 2002, the European Union took decisive action in the form of directive 2002/49/CE relating to the assessment and management of environmental noise. Through the use of strategic noise mapping, every urban community must implement an action plan to combat noise pollution. The monitoring of noise levels in urban environments is therefore an essential factor.
Industrial hygiene is separated into two main applications - Noise at Work and Human Vibration. Norsonic has during the past year expanded the product portfolio to cover both applications. By close cooperation with our customers and health and safety research institutes we have designed a carefully balanced selection of measuring tools and application software that covers both the vibration and noise domain.
For conventional motive power units, E-Motor and Hybrid variations, our solutions include a wide range of applications. Sierra CP can supply powertrain test solutions from single gearbox, engine and transmission units to full 4x4 as installed in vehicle test solutions.
Neighbour Noise, Environmental Noise & Community Noise. Noise nuisance is a growing issue that continues to hit the headlines. Whether it`s noisy neighbours, barking dogs or music events, the need to measure noise nuisance is rapidly increasing.
Noise ordinance covers the monitoring of noise in major urban areas in the US. Common complaints from residents include: Barking dogs, Noisy neighbours, Loud music, Construction noise, Industrial noise, Transportation noise.
Industrial sites are subject to regulations that limit sound and vibration levels at their perimeter and with regard to third parties. The taking of measurements at intervals remains one of the most frequently used methods of evaluating the noise and vibration levels of such sites.
The noise from vehicles such as cars, buses and trucks is wide spread with many people being affected by these noise sources in their daily lives. All modern vehicles will be designed to meet strict safety and emissions standards as well as noise output levels. All vehicles sold in the EU must comply with a range of noise directives to ensure that they meet these specified noise levels when they are sold and many countries enforce regular checks over the life of the vehicle. Motor Sport noise is a often a source...
Banner Engineering`s SureCross product line offers reliable wireless industrial I/O monitoring and control solutions for most applications, including these examples of wireless installations for process control.
In a process unique to the mining industry, mineral ore must be extracted and conveyed to a means of transportation in a challenging environment. This involves the use of high-power fixed and mobile equipment with complex kinematics. The entire process is carried out in cyclic and variable operating conditions with significant safety and accessibility constraints. Mining operations are also a source of noise and vibration pollution both for site workers and people in the surrounding area.
What is the difference between sound and noise? Clearly more than the loudness only. Although an aircraft is very noisy, a mosquito at night-time can be more than enough to spoil a good night`s sleep. Instead of looking at the loudness only as a criterion for the degree of noisiness, we shall simply regard noise as what it is - viz. unwanted sound.
Vibration is simply defined as the variation of an object about a fixed position. To properly define and quantify the physical characteristics of vibration, however, is much more complex - account must be taken of the direction, frequency and magnitude of vibration. Then, what properties should be measured? Is it appropriate to measure the displacement of the vibrating object as a measure of its amplitude, or should we instead measure velocity, or acceleration? What are the conventions for measuring direction,...

Overexposure to occupational vibration from power tools and vibrating machinery can impact the human body in several ways and cause permanent damage. The UK Health and Safety Executive estimates there could be between 2 million people at risk of suffering
Certain leisure activities, and motor sports in particular, are a source of elevated noise levels. They cause significant disturbance for nearby residents, particularly as such sites are being developed in increasingly densely populated urban areas.
Norsonic is a world-leading supplier of sound measuring equipment for the motorsport industry. We have a long experience in supplying sound measurement solutions for racetracks, ranging from single noise monitors to large multichannel monitoring solutions with sophisticated reporting system.
By implementing a noise and vibration monitoring system, the impact of construction site activities can be managed by: Complying with legal requirements relating to public health sanctioning the absence of appropriate precautions to limit abnormally high levels of noise and vibrations. Taking environmental quality considerations into account (HQE approach). Limiting noise and vibration pollution with the comfort of neighbouring residents in mind. Enabling companies in the public works and construction industry to...
